One sec before this gets out of hand..
What version of Linux are you running? Red Hat? Mandrake? Suse?
If it's Red Hat or Mandrake fire up the "printtool" program and that'll let
you pick a printer from a list.
You'll need a driver for that winmodem, Wine can't do anything about that as
it's a "higher level" program than device drivers. A search through Google
for information will probably drag something up.
